Anxiety as Gunmen take over Akure-Ikere Ekiti road, kidnap father, three kids

…..Police react

The disturbing security situation along deplorable road of Akure in Ondo state and Ikere in Ekiti state is getting motorists and residents worry as series of kidnappings have been occurring without serious actions from security operatives to combat the crime.

The latest happened at the weekend when some gunmen reportedly abducted four members of a family at the border along the Akure —Ikere Ekiti Expressway at Iju in Akure-North Local Government Area of Ondo State on Sunday.

It was gathered that the victims were a man and his three children who were travelling from Ado-Ekiti to Akure.

The incident happened some hours after a lecturer of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Mr Mayowa Adinlewa, was also abducted at a bad portion of the same road.

A source also confirmed to SUNSHINETRUTH that the latest victims, whose identity is still unknown at the time of filing this report, were also kidnapped at the very bad part of the road when their vehicle was at its lowest speed.

The source said, “When their vehicle got to the bad portion, it slowed down, then suddenly, the gunmen came out of the bush and shot indiscriminately into the air. Three of the occupants of the vehicle managed to escape from the scene, while the four victims were matched into the bush by the hoodlums.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, said, “I have called the DPO of Iju and she said nothing of such happened and no report of such was made at the police station.”
